    You know there's a rather large difference between anarchy and libertarianism right?

    Freedom doesn't but a total lack of oversight does.

    I'm all for cutting responsibly but Paul wants to cut laws and regulations with a butcher knife.

    Did you watch the video? Give the good Doctor more of a chance. Listen a bit more to what he has to say. Give it a shot.

    How so? It would quickly devolve to anarchy, except if some libertarian principles are ignored. Even the smallest government would need some funds. What if I refuse to pay? Would they be sending "men with guns" or just a strongly worded note?

    Most libertarians would agree that we need to provide the government the funds needed so that it can operate. if they disagree with that then they disagree with the constitution. With a smaller government the demands for funding would be much less and other income sources would be adequate. Ron Paul would like to do away with the income tax and would push for lower taxes whenever possible. It's up to congress to change the tax code but he can put pressure on them.
